All About South Park

Youth Services

Arts Education

The arts are an essential ingredient in a complete education. Evidence suggests that when schools invest in arts education, students demonstrate academic gains. And when students engage in creative expression such as music, art, dance or performance, they benefit from increased self-confidence, sharpened attention and refined interpersonal skills.


Youth Arts

Arts education helps teens become creative critical thinkers. Youth Arts is an annual funding program that makes a difference in the lives of Seattle middle and high school youth by providing arts education beyond the regular school day in neighborhoods throughout the city.
